This is a great, healthy, low-fat, vegetarian chile. My friend, Lauren from Alaska, made this for me, and I've been hooked on it ever since. It's easy to make and the lemon and cilantro at the end add a little special something. Plus, it's easy to adjust quantities and ingredients depending on what you have on hand. Enjoy!
